WWF, formerly know as the World Wildlife Fund, started over 40 years ago in an effort to promote conservation.
They have raised and spend over $1 billion on projects and activities that play a part in the campaign to stop the accelerating degradation of Earth’s natural environment, and to help its human inhabitants live in greater harmony with nature. As their website says they are “in the business of saving the planet.” Their goals are to keep the Earth biologically diverse and protect environment and the animals that live in especially from the destruction of man.In over 100 countries on all continents they work on issues relating to climate change, forests, fresh water, marine life, endangered species, and sustainability. They work with other NGO’s, aid agencies, business, and the people all over the world to educate them and work to make the world a better place.
One of the great things you can do to help the environment is to sign up for their PASSPORT network. It send you period emails about issues that are important to WWF and they ask for your help to write a letter to Senator or Congressmen. It is an easy process you will receive an email about and issue and you follow the link to a letter that you can send the senator or edit it and write your own. It is an easy way to know what is being voted for in the federal and state government. Sign up here http://www.panda.org/how_you_can_help/campaign/index.cfm
